Got up early to watch my Rangers kick off the new season this morning. Pretty frustrating match not quite sure if I should take the positive view which is; win at a difficult place to play on a plastic pitch. Resiliencey shown to find a stoppage time winner after blowing a late lead...

Or the negative view. Lots of possession with little end product. Late lead blown which was a problem last year. Failure to match that other lot's emphatic season opener..

Overall I didn't think it was enjoyable match to watch but I did go a bit mental and walked away from it happy after the late winner. Hoping they show me something more next Sunday against Hibs.

Bump:

Rangers for the first time in a long time look back to Rangers. Yes there was a red car involved but last year they wouldn't have beat Hibs 6-1. Jermaine Defoe starting with squad rotation scoring a perfect hat trick. Alfredo Morelos off the bench for 15 minutes with a brace. Not going to say w'ere better than then the other lot from across town yet (they did win both their games so far by convincing scorelines) but I do see a very close and very legit title challenge in Scotland for the first time in many years.

*The Rangers

Also, boooo to this being only about the Premiership, meaning The World Famous Dundee United are out of the discussion for at least another year....

I can adjust the title of the thread or we can just allow you to discuss Dundee United here since I think we're the only two people here remotely interested in Scottish football ! :D I thought we used to have some people of the Green and Grey persuasion on here but they haven't been rearing their heads lately.

It should be noted Rangers have very few Scots in the team right now. Of those Only Allan McGregor in goal and Ryan Jack in midfield are likely to see significant minutes. Rangers seem to have started largely building through the English lower leagues under Warburton and Gerrard seems to be continuing that plus supplementing with EPL loans.
